Friday’s lineups: Tigers vs. Mariners

Rick Porcello spent 4 1/2 seasons on the same team with Austin Jackson. He said yesterday he has not talked with him since the trade, but he hopes to do so this weekend. Before that, however, they have a game to play.

“It’s obviously going to be a little strange to see him on the other side,” Porcello said, “but honestly, at this point right now, the way things have been going, I really don’t care. I’m trying to get his ass off just the same as everybody else.”

Jackson has been relatively quiet lately atop the Seattle lineup, but he has scored each of the last three times he has reached base.


  1. Rajai Davis, CF
  2. Ian Kinsler, 2B
  3. Miguel Cabrera, 1B (1-for-2, walk vs. Paxton)
  4. Victor Martinez, DH (1-for-1, double, 2 walks vs. Paxton)
  5. Torii Hunter, RF (1-for-3, HR, K vs. Paxton)
  6. J.D. Martinez, LF
